Eurasian Collared Dove
It’s always nice to have a few visitors!
SBS: Sheila’s Bird Shots: ~Broad-tailed Hummingbird and Eurasian Collared-Dove~
The hummingbirds love to sit on one of our Amateur Ham Radio antennas. During the summer, I have captured a few of them sitting on this wire.
Today, I walked outside and she was sitting, pretty as you please, in a Juniper tree, no more than ten feet away. She did not seem to be in a hurry to fly away. Did I have my camera – no! I know she was telling me: “Ha, no camera, I think I will just sit here.”
I could have gotten a photo without the wire, maybe!
Another frequent visitor to my yard, this summer, has been the Eurasian Collared-Dove. I was enjoying a little sun, out on the deck, and I happened to look into the Apple tree and this Dove was asking me to take its picture. It then fly over to the Pine tree and posed again for me.
I took the Broad-tailed Hummingbird photo on September 15, 2013 and the Dove photos on September 18, 2013.
